themselves from being pre-service teachers (PSTs) to become novice teachers. Data
from a case study on how a group of PSTs experience integrate into teachers’
community during teaching practicum in Indonesian context shows that their journey
is not linear; it encompasses a complex process, enriched by tension and conflict before
some of them hold a sense of belonging to teachers community in their placement
schools. Their ample engagement and participation with members of school
community during teaching practicum program have effectively played as a significant
factor behind their integration and identity transition.
